Pro Custom Paint Expanding Elkhart Operations
Pro Custom Paint, an Elkhart, Ind.-based automotive paint shop servicing the RV and related industries, is expanding with the acquisition of two additional industrial buildings. FM Stone Commercial, which assisted Pro Custom Paint in securing the properties, reported that the facilities total 66,647 square feet and are situated on 7.4 acres on County Road 3 in Elkhart.
“The plan is to consolidate our existing business under one roof,” said Pro Custom Paint President Mike Suski in a press release. “We will use one of the new buildings which is roughly 33,000 square feet, add a new addition of 25,000 square feet and move the operations from our two other buildings under one roof for more efficiency. Then we will take our other two buildings (18,000 and 20,800 square feet) and create two new businesses. One will focus on paint for smaller parts related to the RV, marine and automotive industry and the other will focus on catering to existing RV owners who want things like special paint jobs or need repair work on their vehicles.”
All four of Pro Custom Paint’s buildings are within a quarter mile of each other. Founded in September of 2010 and currently employing 50 people, the company expects to add another 30 employees by the end the January, 2014.
